A Beautiful Villa and Estate in the Veneto
Review Submitted: 21 December 2010
Date of Stay: September 2010
We were a group of 16, and as their leader I arrived first and thus was able to observe the wonder of my fellow travelers as they arrived at this beautiful house. Since we were a large group we also reserved the barchessa just across the drive from the villa. Staying at the Villa Albrizzi is much like visiting old friends who happen to own a 450-year-old mansion in a charming small town in the Veneto. Family pictures, heirlooms, books, albums, beautiful carpets all were in place. Bedrooms, which were large and most off which were luxurious, and baths were immaculate. The public rooms were very beautiful, and the music pavilion was a special delight--a spectacular 18th- century rococo fantasy. We made day trips into Venice, Vicenza, Verona, and Padua, as well as walking around the charming town of Este, just outside the gates of the estate, and visiting Petrarch's house at nearby Aquà Petrarca. The staff were wonderful--accommodating, friendly, and first-rate. If possible, book for two weeks, thus ensuring time for both day trips and the enjoyment of this beautiful property.
